Notes:

* It seems the key to Pit Strategy is to keep up with adjustment of "Rear Toe". So far I've had different rear toe settings for each race. The more negative the setting the better the slow corner handling, but you sacrifice rear tire wear. The less negative and closer to a zero setting, the more laps you'll get between pit stops.

Circuit de la Sarthe I (race #6) is very bumpy. I softened the springs (17.5/18.5), raised the ride height (53/55). Overall the downforce was a bit less due to the ride height change which allowed the car to top out a bit more on the straights. Toe of -2 allowed the rear tires to last six laps between pits but left it a bit loose on worn tires, beware! I expect the same for "The 'Ring".

Nurburgring Nordschleife (race #12) is even more bumpy. You'll be replacing the skid plates on your F1 after this race, for sure. I softened the springs (17.0/18.0), raised the ride hieght (56/58), softened the shocks (SB 6/7 and SRB 8/9). All this in an attempt to keep the car on the track. I found out that F1 cars have no bussiness at the 'Ring!!

Fuji Speedway 2005 (race #14) was a lesson in fuel management. I'm convinced that the car will run faster on lighter fuel loads, My fasest lap time was when running very low on fuel. Throughout the series I've been refueling every other pit cycle in order to save time in the pits. In this race I began taking on only the fuel I would need to complete the two cycles. My last refuel was on lap 51 where I took on only six (of ten) tick marks of fuel. My goal was to hit the finish line bone dry,......... I miscalculated,....... going into turn one on the last lap I ran out. The car defaults to 50 mph max and limps back to the pits,.or in this case the finish line. I was up two laps on the field allowing me to finish and win,........ one more tick of fuel would have done it,......... Overall time reflects a very slow 67th lap. Good lesson learned,..... Look forward to playing with this some more at Suzuka (race#15).

I recorded the car milage at the start of the first race and end of the last............
Total Milage: 3,222 for the entire 15 race series.
